Roger Corman Cult Classics


You interested in such fare as Piranha and Humanoids from the Deep on Blu-ray? Well then Shout! Factory has a double serving for you come August 3rd!

Piranha was released in 1978 and has all of the camp that goes along with that glorious decade of horror cinema. This is the film that inspired the infamous James Cameron sequel and the much anticipated Piranha 3D coming out later this summer.

Extras include:

  • Commentary with Director Joe Dante and Producer Jon Davison
  • Behind the Scenes Footage
  • Making of Piranha Featurette
  • Additional Scenes from the Network Television Version
  • Original Theatrical Trailer, with Commentary

Humanoids from the Deep was the New World World Pictures follow up two years after the success of Piranha. The gore fest flirted with an "X" rating at the time and controversy surrounded the release which had to be heavily edited, but now with this Blu-ray release you can finally see the film as it was made to be seen.

Extras include:

  • Never Before Seen Deleted Scenes
  • Leonard Maltin interview with Roger Corman on the making of Humanoids
  • The Making of Humanoids of the Deep Featurette
